a grey and lilac room for heidi

interior design childrens room heidiThis is Heidi’s room, a children’s interior design project I completed a little while ago. Heidi is Lola’s sister – you can see her bedroom design in my previous post. Their parents called in my help when they moved house and were struggling with ideas for their daughters’ bedrooms. They wanted the rooms to have a similar feel and fit in with the rest of the house, yet have their own identity.

The bespoke vintage style wardrobe was made to fit in the narrow alcove next to a pretty fireplace. We gave Heidi her own Swan print and dolls house, but in different colours to Lola’s. The girls have the same two-tone curtains – another visual connection.

Timber was used to bring warmth to the scheme. A light moon, cloud and star theme creates a whimsical mood in Heidi’ room.
